Mao Christmas Tree Ornament, Obama's White House 2009

. . . when Charles Darwin published his theory of evolution, Marx regarded it as far more than theory. He seized upon it as his “scientific” proof that there was no kingdom of Heaven, only the kingdom of Matter. Darwin had vindicated Marx in his rejection of Hegel’s [idealism]. Ignoring the fact that Darwin’s theory of evolution was just that a theory… Marx adapted Darwin’s ideas to the social classes of his day. . . Darwin’s theory of evolution being what it was, Marx reasoned that the social classes, like all matter, must always be in struggle with each other for survival and dominance.

More than a year ago I wrote a series of posts regarding the rise of liberal fascism in the United States.  Part of that work involved the examination of the role of science in the development of the ‘progressive‘  Marx-based ideology in the United States, and how social Darwinism undermined the Constitution beginning with President Woodrow Wilson.  But the misnomer here, perhaps the diversion, is that social Darwinism is Marxism.  Marx found Darwin’s work to be the ‘proof’ that the ideology he espoused–communism–was the true and necessary direction or evolution of society.

Darwin’s theory of evolution had no real scientific underpinning save a few observations. Evolution was seen as a materialistic process, a survival of the fittest over scarce resources. Thus conflict was the necessary ingredient of survival, and it was central to evolution.  When applied to communism, this ‘struggle’ or ‘conflict’ became a dialectic, or

any systematic reasoning, exposition, or argument that juxtaposes opposed or contradictory ideas and usually seeks to resolve their conflict through ‘reason’. 

But the only reasoned outcome of a debate between communism and capitalism is that capitalism fails and gives way eventually to communism…through materialism, survival of the fittest, through conflict.
